The campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has been declared a security zone by the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC).

This follows intelligence gathered by the REGSEC of intended disturbances on the campus of the public university by the students.

The intelligence has established that the students’ body of the KNUST is being instigated by some members of the Alumni.

The Chairman of the Ashanti REGSEC, Simon Osei-Mensah who made this declaration in a statement dated September 3, 2019, and released in Kumasi said: “Anybody who directly or indirectly engages in activities that may disturb the peace on the KNUST campus shall be sternly dealt with in accordance with the law”.

The Ashanti REGSEC has therefore directed that any person or group that has grievances against the KNUST should report it to the appropriate authorities for redress or necessary action.

“The general public, particularly, parents and guidance, are advised to caution their children and wards to abide by the University regulations and refrain from acts that may contravene the Public Order Act”, the statement in part read.

It added, “The Ashanti Regional Security Council serves notice that it shall ensure strict enforcement of the laws concerning public order, whenever they are breached”.

The KNUST is currently on a time bomb waiting to explode following what the students’ body describes as a failure on the part of the school’s authorities to address their grievances in relation to the Katanga Hall which has been turned into a mix sex hall instead of the traditional single-sex hall.

Various concern bodies of the University including some members of its Alumni have joined the fray with many serving notices to the management body of the University to have themselves to blame should there be any chaos on campus like what was witnessed a year ago.
